ABNKKBSNPLAKo?! by Bob Ong

        
ABNKKBSNPLAKo?!
by Bob Ong
Summary from Goodreads:

"Bakit namamalo si Miss Uyehara? 
May mga notebook bang lumilipad? 
Bakit masakit sa ulo ang Mafhemafics? 
Ano ang lihim sa likod ng pagkakaibigan nila Pepe at Tagpi? 
Bakit may mga taong nakapikit sa litrato? 
Masarap ba ang Africhado? 
Sino si Tigang? 
Bakit may mga classroom na kulang ang upuan? 
Masama bang mag-isip nang malalim habang naglalakad? 
Saan ang Ganges River sa Pilipinas? 
Bakit may mga umaakyat ng overpass pero hindi tumatawid? 

Sino ang webmaster ng bobongpinoy sa Internet?"

Rating:

Two words that I can think of whenever I hear “ABNKKBSNPLAKo?!”: Education and Nostalgia.

Since I didn’t grow up in the Philippines and I hadn’t experienced the life Bob Ong has, I was confused with some of the topics discussed in the book. I remember that I had to ask my mom what NUTRIBUN was and what was the whole deal about it. Please pardon my ignorance. ☺

Hearing about what goes on in public schools from Ong (and my Mom, she went to public school too, since I had constantly asked her questions while reading through ABNKKBSNPLAKo?!) I came to be more appreciative of the schools I went to and the teachers I’ve had.

Humor and laughter aside, this is book is very meaningful. It lets us realize the real meaning and difference between schooling and education.
